I cannot connect. I keep getting a message "authentication Failed"


Do you connect your PC to router in an administrator role using web browser? Or do you connect some device to Wi-Fi network?

  1. Administrator role: You need to have correct login name and password for admin access. Search in manual or ask Google for default login name and password of your router type. If non-default password is set in the router then you must reset router setting and erase its settings to default (factory) status. You will lose all router configuration but default password is back.
  2. Wi-Fi client role: There are more possibilities why authentication fails in wireless communication. Mentioned error message describes what kind of problem occurred.
    (a) A password you put to client device does not match the wireless network password which is set in router. Your computer, tablet or smartphone WI-Fi interface must have exactly same password as WI-Fi network which is transmitted from router. Check and compare passwords on both sides, in client device and in router.
    (b) Client Wi-Fi interface security (encryption) mode differs from Wi-Fi network encryption used in router. But the same mode must be set on both sides (client and router) for successful connection.
Encryption modes are
  • WPA2 Enterpise
  • WPA2 PSK ("home")
  • WPA Enterprise
  • WPA PSK
  • WEP
  • No encryption (open)
Higher position - better security. Enterprise Wi-Fi modes require security devices like authentication servers, certification authorities etc. They are not used in home networks usually.

How to set up internet on Samsung Jet


Ensure that you have the appropriate network key code needed to enable you to access a secure Wi-Fi network.


If you are connecting to a secure Wi-Fi network with MAC address restrictions, you will require pre-authorisation for the router. You will need to find your Samsung Jet's MAC (Media Access Control) address. This is a 12-character code which may be needed by the network controller to enable the phone to connect. See Getting the Samsung Jet's MAC address below.


You can get to the Wi-Fi application either via the main menu or using a homescreen Wi-Fi Widget.
  1. To get to the Wi-Fi application via the main menu, press the MENU button (either on the home screen or the hexagonal button beneath)
  2. In the main menu, swipe your finger sideways to go through the menu pages until you see the Wi-Fi icon. Press to select.
  3. The Wi-Fi application opens.
  4. Alternatively, to use the Wi-Fi Widget, from standby, press the home screen. The Widget toolbar opens up.
  5. Scroll down to find the Wi-Fi Widget icon. Press the Wi-Fi Widget. The Wi-Fi Widget will pop up on the main screen.
  6. Press the Wi-Fi Widget on the main part of the display to launch the Wi-Fi application. The Wi-Fi application opens.
  7. Once in the Wi-Fi screen, press the large Wi-Fi button in the middle of the screen to turn it on. Wi-Fi is activated and the button turns blue.
  8. Press SEARCH Nearby Wi-Fi access points (APs) will appear as small circles on the display, with their names next to them.
  9. Press the circle representing the Wi-Fi Netowrk you want to connect to. An options panel appears.
  10. You can press CONNECT to connect to the network or press ADD if you want to add it to a list of preferred networks for easy access later.
  11. You are taken into a settings menu for the Wi-Fi access point. If the Wi-Fi access point requires a network key code, scroll down to the Network Key panel. Press to select.
  12. The numberpad appears. Type in the network key code and press DONE. You are returned to the previous settings screen. Press SAVE
  13. A list of connections appears. Press the back arrow button
  14. If you initially pressed CONNECT, the phone will connect to the selected Wi-Fi network and a confirmation message will appear. The display now shows the new connection, illustrated by blue dots linking the circles onscreen (Figure 15).
  15. If you initially pressed ADD, you will be returned to the Wi-Fi screen. Press the circle representing the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to. A pop up panel appears.
  16. Press CONNECT. You will be connected and the connection illustrated onscreen.
Press the back button to return to the home screen.


  1. From the home screen press MENU to enter the main menu (Figure 1).
  2. In the main menu, press INTERNET
  3. Choose which browser option you want (Home, Enter URL, Bookmarks, etc.) (Figure 18) and press to select. If you press Home you will be taken to the pre-loaded home page.
  4. If required, use the numberpad to type in an URL or scroll a list to select bookmarks. When an URL is completed press GO. Alternatively press the bookmark you wish to access. You will taken to the web page requested.



  1. Activate Wi-Fi and press SEARCH, as before.
  2. When the Wi-Fi access point you want to connect to appears on the display (Figure 8), press it to select.
  3. A pop up options panel appears (Figure 9). Press DETAILS
  4. Details of the Wi-Fi access point appear onscreen.
  5. Scroll down by dragging your finger up the screen. Towards the bottom of the settings list, DEVICE MAC appears, with a string of 12 charactesr beneath (Figure 21). Each handset has an individual MAC address, and this panel will display your Samsung Jet's unique Mac address.
Make a note of the MAC address. You will need it if you want to use the Samsung Jet's Wi-Fi to access a secure Wi-Fi network using MAC address restrictions. This can be added into the wireless router settings access list.

I cannot connect to our office wi-fi connections. It says authentication failed. how can i able to connect. pls help me.


Hi,Please try these steps:-
Wireless router side
  • 1. Set wireless mode to B-G Mixed
  • 2. Standard Channel = 8
  • 3. Encryption - TKIP

Phone side
  • 1. Delete the configured wireless connection/s if you already have one.
  • 2. Enable wi-fi but do not perform search at the moment
  • 3. Now open the browser and select settings then browser profiles press search for wi-fi.
  • 4. Select the connection that you want to connect to then type the details and match the settings on the router.
  • 5. Auth type = WPA, encryption = TKIP, network key = router pre-shared key, protocol = HTTP, Home URL = address of modem (you can change it later if everything is already working), leave proxy blank, linger = default, adhoc = off, no need to do advance settings.
  • 6. Save the settings and do not connect yet.
  • 7. Exit the browser and go to Wi-Fi and select the connection that you have just configured and select details.
  • 8. Check all the settings if ok. if the channel is different with the router, adjust it on the router to match the one used by the phone. IP address = not connected (it will automatically connect once you browse the internet).
  • 9. Now, try to browse the internet but you must set first the connection you've just configured as default connection.
hope rhis will be helpfull to you. Please rates me. goodluck.............

At the bottom right you should see: "Search for wi-fi". Click on it. 6. It will now serch for your home wi-fi network. 7. Once it find your network, click on it and enter your security detail. 8. Now you network is listed as part of the Browser profiles. 9. Now you can select your wi-fe network as your default browser profile.
Now when you open the browser it will try to conect to your wifi to start browsing. If you use your home wifi internet to browse you will not incur cellphone/mobile phone network charges. When browsing based on your wifi network , you should see a "green" connection symbol at the top of your phone...
Enjoy :) Ed

You will be asked for a password only if you are connecting to a password protected WiFi network.You can set a password for your Home WiFi modem and after that you have to enter the password whenever you try to connect.
